An initiative by the region’s leading non-governmental organisation (NGO), Enterprise Asia, the Asia-Pacific Enterprise Awards (APEA) is the region’s largest recognition programme recognising entrepreneurial and business excellence. Themed “Build Back Better”, this year marks its 15th year and the 5th edition in Vietnam.

Enterprise Asia chairman Tan Sri Dr. Fong Chan Onn, stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic is a wake-up call to the world that placed businesses to the test with a plethora of challenges. It was also the year that Vietnam unleashed its true potential and demonstrated its resilience by becoming one of the top-performing economies in the world. Vietnam’s vibrant entrepreneurial landscape has shown the world its readiness to adopt technology and to constantly innovate.”

Dr. Fong added that, “In 2020, Vietnam’s General Statistics Office recorded a 2.9 per cent GDP growth in the country amid the pandemic. This grand feat is a result of the efforts, determination, and dedication of the business leaders and enterprises honoured at this year’s APEA.”

The APEA has recognised entrepreneurial trailblazers within various business industries since 2007 while honouring remarkable achievements in four categories – Master Entrepreneur, Fast Enterprise, Inspirational Brand, and Corporate Excellence categories.
